Things that irritate me #782

People who tell others all about the law when they haven't a clue. As in You can't be fired for using sick leave time. Or other such nonsense. I don't have a problem with non-lawyers passing on such information, if they have a clue as to whether or not the statement is actually true.

This is an extension of the phenomenon of people who pass on all sorts of information without having a clue. People who pass on virus warning. People who forward inane apocryphal stories that are false. etc. We all make mistakes. But if you are prone to being stupid, you should stop passing on information people tell you. Of course, no one really believes they are stupid.


  • Last post

    I don't plan to delete my LJ (I paid for permanent status, dammit), but this will be the last post. I don't plan to read it anymore, either…

  • Unemployed

    Turns out my insurance is cut off at midnight tonight, not the end of the month. In a way, that's a good thing. Now I'll move my appointment…

  • Home from the cruise, off to Sunnyvale

    A week off, but tomorrow I head to the home office for a week there.
